Export internal rewrite rules?

Re: How-To and Troubleshooting

How can I export WordPress’s internal rewrite rules to an htaccess file? I’m thinking of leaving WordPress, but I’ve changed my permalink structure a few times over the years and want to keep all my urls alive.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Rewrite might have useful info, but I don’t know enough to make use of it. I’ve also looked at http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks .

As an unappealing fallback, I could use a plugin to make a sitemap for each permalink scheme, then compare them and try to derive rules. This would leave out any posts whose slug might have changed if I renamed them, but there probably aren’t many of those (and maybe none that anyone linked to).

Others have asked this 8 years ago and 4 years ago with no answer. “4 years ago” seems to refer to a plugin that lets one view the rules, but I don’t see anything like that in the plugin repository.

Restore to new user?

Re: Issues · bit-team/backintime

I’m finally about to update my OS, but I’d planned to use a different (shorter) username & hostname — what will I need to do to restore my files and BiT profiles? I know I can manually copy (or rsync) them from the backup folders, but would like to restore through BiT if possible. I’m backing up my dotfiles, so I will have a copy of ~/.config/backintime/config.

I’m using Back In Time 1.0.7 on LXLE 12.04 (based on Lubuntu 12.04), and moving to whatever version of Back In Time is on LXLE / Lubuntu 14.04. The update isn’t an in-place upgrade; I have to do a fresh installation. Also, some of my profiles backup (and all of them backup to) external hard drives.

(I don’t see how to add a label, but obviously this is a question).

Anyone know a good way to share playlists online?

Anyone know a good way to share playlists online? I was using Youtube because it has a lot of music but their ads ruin the experience (I only noticed recently on a friend’s computer; I use an adblocker on mine). I basically want to post online mixtapes but I haven’t kept up with streaming music stuff so I don’t know what’s out there or if it’s even feasible given copyright issues.
